I have long wondered the meaning of my name. It is a family name, and my grandmother told me that her father had gotten the name from an elderly woman who he knew from his dental business. I have been told that it is a Norweigen goddess' name. My family is Scandinavian in descent. My grandfather, who is a docter, had treated a woman from Norway and she said that she had known girls named Lera. If any onw has any additional information on my name, I would appreciate a reply.
